    TransForce, one of the largest North American trucking operators, will acquire same-day and expedited carrier Velocity Express of Stafford, Texas.

    Terms of the transaction, expected to close by the end of January, were not released.

    Velocity, which operates a network of 80 locations in the U.S. and western Canada, will add about $160 million in revenue to TransForce’s top line, the company said.

    TransForce also owns Dyanamex, a same-day carrier based in Texas acquired for $248 million in 2010, and Quik X Transportation, acquired in 2011.
